Precision and prog metal: the two go hand in hand - especially in Switzerland, home to clockworks and quality craftsmanship. True to that national spirit, Appearance Of Nothing are stepping right into the tradition of outstanding and unique metal, Made In Switzerland (ever heard of Coroner, Eluveitie, or perhaps Celtic Frost?). Honing their skills together since 2004, the band around founding members Marc Petralito (piano, hammond, synths) and Omar Cuna (bass & vocals), along with shredders Manuel Meinen & Albert Ibrahimaj and drummer Ronnie Wolf, have always felt true to Prog with a capital letter - think Opeth, Dream Theater, or Symphony X. With their new single 'Storm' they marked an explosive return after parting ways with their former lead singer in 2017. The newest family members Albert Ibrahimaj (two-time winner of a prestigious Berklee College of Music scholarship) and Manuel Meinen - both acclaimed guitar teachers - have found themselves right at home, driving the band's sound forward.
The new album has been completed as well, and is set to release in March 2019. The record has been recorded and produced with none other than the undisputed queen of Swiss metal, Anna Murphy (Cellar Darling, ex-Eluveitie) at Soundfarm Studios, has been mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Leprous, Symphony X & more), and features illustrious guest performers including Anna Murphy herself, cello virtuoso Tina Guo (Hans Zimmer, 'Wonder Woman' soundtrack), Devon Graves of the legendary Psychotic Waltz, and former Scar Symmetry vocalist Christian Älvestam. Last, but not least, Appearance of Nothings new guitar sound was created at Swiss guitar legend Tommy Vetterli's New Sound Studio. More album details (and, of course, music) will be released in the coming weeks. So while Appearance of Nothing are getting ready to take apart the European stages in 2019, make sure to add 'Storm' on Spotify, and subscribe to the following channels and pages. The band is on tour in 2019 to promote their new album.
